I totally trust Mr. Keener
Every­one at the Keener Law Firm was won­der­ful to work with.  My phone calls were returned promptly and my ques­tions were answered.  The Keener Law Firm is “The Total Pack­age”.  I was sat­is­fied with their hard work, the respect and dig­nity I received and my set­tle­ment.  The Keener Law Firm is good for their word.  I am liv­ing proof that they are trust­wor­thy.  I totally trust them.

These are the people we like and trust.
Both my fiancé and myself are for­mer clients of the Keener Law Firm. The level of respect and dig­nity we received, along with the entire staff, tire­lessly being there for us like fam­ily. The only thing we regret is not being able to ever repay the entire firm for what they all helped us through. Russell’s expla­na­tion and knowl­edge of the law, along with his prompt return calls and e-mails are all 21st cen­tury. We never felt out of the loop or alone. Thanks again all!”

Mr
Hi, I am actually curious after I saw my medical records that have been shared with my lawyer. I was wondering where where my medical records are after breaking my back years ago. I didn’t see it on the list and I don’t know if it needs to be put on there. They probably have that paperwork but could you please double check just in case so I can send them a picture

Professional and compassionate Law Firm.
If you need a lawyer, Keener Law Firm is one you can trust. Their team did an excellent job with my Disability case. Russell Keener took care of everything and basically I just answered a few questions during my hearing. We won the case and I highly recommend Keener Law Firm to get the job done.

The Keener Law Firm has been fantastic!
I'm currently filing for my disability due to some traumatic events in my life that have essentially disabled me from being able to work and the Keener Law Firm's been there every step of the way to help me on my journey. They've been essential to me in this endeavor, and they've been nothing short of kind, compassionate, and understanding. They've defied all the negative cliches about lawyers, and have restored my faith in legal representatives because of their treatment in regards to me and my condition. The Use of their Law Firm portal, the constant contact they've provided, the ways that they've reminded me about my upcoming trial and paperwork and how they've kept up with contact have just been tremendous. As someone who suffers from BPD, PTSD, and Anxiety? It's not always easy, and in fact it's fairly difficult, for me to keep on top of appointments and social interactions but they've really rallied around me and even helped prop me up. If you're going for disability, they're the ones to go for.

I was in search of a lawyer after being turned down three times by Social Security. Not being able to work anymore due to medical reason. So I was watching T.V. and the commercial of Keener Law Firm came on talking about how they can help. Well let me tell you they did just that!!! I reach out to them. I was given a call back from one of the Assistant in the office Ms. Dakota in about one day. Who was very professional . Informing me of all the things I would need when my Personal Paralegal called .. LOL Yes I said personal. Because that is just how they made me feel. Like I was family that needed some help with a problem. So Ms. Pharr called me we talked, went over some specifics of what I needed to do to get the ball running. We did just that. I produce the information they asked of me. They produce the Professional Quality I needed from them. Little be hold I tell You they took care of me. On the day of my hearing Mr. Keener called we talk. You can tell he really cares for his clients. I was granted my Disability . I will Personally recommend The Keener Law firm To Everyone. You want regret it!!!!

Thank you Keener Law Firm
Everyone at The Keener Law Firm helped me so much with my disability application appeal and subsequent hearing. They made a stressful process infinitely less so and seemed to truly care about my personal case. Jackie was there to answer any questions I had, updated me as needed, and was so kind when I was worried about my hearing having to be done over the phone due to the pandemic. Russel Keener himself was absolutely stellar at my hearing and made me feel at ease before, during, and after. I highly recommend this law firm to anyone who is feeling overwhelmed by the process of applying for disability benefits.

Keener Law Firm Rocks!
I didn't know where to get help when I became too sick to work. Then I saw a TV from Keener Law Firm saying that I didn't have to be denied by Social Security to be represented by them. A couple of phone calls later and I had represention! Their staff always made me feel like a deserving person and not just a client. They won my case and now I have a life to live. Thanks to everyone there and a special shout out to Tiffany.
